Get In On Our New And Improved Men's Study

“We need to brace ourselves up and to realize that we are responsible for thoughts, attitudes, and actions. We need to reckon on the fact that we died to sin's reign, that it no longer has any dominion over us, that God has united us with the risen Christ in all His power and has given us the Holy Spirit to work in us. Only as we accept our responsibility and appropriate God's provisions will we make any progress in our pursuit of holiness.”
-Jerry Bridges

The quote above is from The Pursuit of Holiness, the book we’ll be studying in the Men’s Study this Fall.

Pastor Dustin will host and lead our study on the second Tuesday of each month beginning in September. Spots are limited and you must be able to commit to a series of meetings.

This is a place for men to talk like men about God. This is a place for men to grow.

Gentlemen, get yourselves registered.

*Deadline to register is August 31st.

Five Reasons To Register For Our Men's Retreat
MRLogo-Black.png

Our first ever Men's Retreat is happening in Idyllwild, CA from April 19-21, 2018. Three California churches joining together to grow as 'Men On A Mission.' 

Listed below are five compelling reasons why you should register right now:

Brothers. The Christian life is a team sport. God has welcomed us into a family and intends for us to depend on one another. As we think, pray, and share our lives together, God will work in us. Our concentrated time together will strengthen our bonds of friendship.

Athletics. For those of us cooped up in an office 40+ hours a week, nothing feels better than huffing and puffing on cool, mountain air. We have some friendly church vs church competitions planned to get your heart rate up and remind you how lucky you are to live at sea level.

Chow. And by chow we mean meat. Steak. Sausage. Bacon. The key ingredient to a successful men's retreat is a large amount of animal protein.

Orations. We will be well taught. Mark Prater, Sovereign Grace's Executive Director, is our keynote speaker. If you've never heard Mark speak, you're in for a treat. He is godly, wise, and humble and will tether everything to the gospel.

Nature. Few things help us reset and focus like taking a break from our hectic lives in the concrete jungle and spending some concentrated time in nature.

Is Your Marriage Disappointing?

It's easy to be disappointed in marriage. It's easy for our hopes and dreams to be dashed. Our expectations of married life are not as rosy as we imagined.

We buy into the delusion that our biggest problem is outside of us. We blame our spouse. We blame our circumstances. We rarely take seriously the nature of our own sin. 

So what can we do?

If you would like to learn and grow, attend the "What Did You Expect?" Marriage Conference hosted by our sister church, Sovereign Grace Church of Pasadena. It's a Friday evening and Saturday in February to work on the very things that make marriage challenging. Take advantage of this opportunity.
